Final submissions from clubs due by close of Business today
AFL Looking at Friday October 9 to announce details of new competition
I'm hearing that alignments with AFL clubs might be forced upon the stand-alone clubs, depending on the cuts to list sizes of the almighty AFL
looks like the name of the competition may change also .....
If that's true Wal and they force alignments on the standalones then thats the stone end for me.
That's what i'm hearing CGull, if the cuts to AFL lists are such that they won't have the numbers to field their own teams then the stand-alones will be forced into alignments with them so that their (the AFL-listed players) will have somewhere to play
There are also rules around the composition of playing lists, ie stand-alone clubs will have to contract 20 players under the age of 23, and 10 must be under the age of 21. Aligned and AFL clubs will be permitted to list five players over the age of 23. Five will have to be under the age of 23, and 20 other players under 21, sourced from zones that each club has been allocated.
I assume this is to create a pathway from the NAB Cup to the VFL that the Development League used to provide until some highly-paid exec at the AFL decided that it was 'not sustainable' ......
North Melbourne have confirmed today that they have reinstated their VFL program
Surely the AFL haven't got the power to force the stand alones into algnments? Surely not...
would you put anything past that bunch of w#nkers??
